King Charles has confirmed the country’s regret of the past and the pain inflicted on Kenyans during the colonial era.
““It is the intimacy of our shared history that has brought our people together. However, we must also acknowledge the most painful times of our long and complex relationship. The wrongdoings of the past are a cause of the greatest sorrow and the deepest regret,” said the King
The King who was speaking during dinner at State House noted that he will deepen his understanding of the wrongdoing and interact with the affected communities.

“In coming back to Kenya, It matters greatly to me that I should deepen my own understanding of these wrongs and that I meet some of those whose lives and communities were grievously affected.” he said
He continued by saying that history should be said with honesty and openness as the two countries strive to strengthen their relationship.
“None of these can change the past but by addressing our history with honesty and openness. We can perhaps demonstrate the strength of our friendship today. And in so doing we can I hope continue to build a bond for the years ahead.” he said
King Charles was speaking in regard to the brutality Kenyans especially Mau Mau to ensure that freedom is attained. He was also speaking on an issue that Kenyans have for a long time demanding liability for their actions.
